You may think of them as “houseplants,” but indoor plants can thrive in an apartment also. Plants add color to your apartment, enhance air quality, change your disposition, and make you feel close to nature if you can’t go out of your apartment to have fun in your scenic community. The top plants for apartments in Carmel don’t want much care. If you need some topiaries or succulents in your space, these no-fuss plants are a great present for your apartment.

The Top Plants For Apartments In Carmel With Low Light

Your apartment floor plan was built for people but notnecessarily vegetation. If your place doesn’t have a lot of direct sunlight, you can find greenery that thrive in low light conditions. Spider plants are nice, easy plants that won’t demand much natural light. These plants have skinny spiky leaves that propagate by spintering out “spiderettes,” or mini versions of themselves that trail down the primary plant. They look perfect on higher shelves that give the leaves space to dangle. Spider plants are very hardy and only require watering when the leaves gets dry. They also like a crowded pot, so you shouldn’t have to prune them almost ever.

Don’t forget about the peace lily as a wonderful plant for Carmel apartments. These sweet plants have stylish forest green leaves and ivory flowers. They rise tall rather than wide and don’t demand much light, so you can park one in any nook in your smaller apartment. They also won’t demand much watering and will tell forgetful caretakers that they need water by dropping leaves.

If you’re a work-a-holic, traveling, or experiencing your apartment community’s many amenities, you could forget to take care of your leafy friends. To stop killing your plants, go with cacti and succulents. These desert-native plants only need to be watered once a week in warm seasons and less frequently during winter. Place them in a succulent and cactus soil and rock mix and put them in a sunny area like a kitchen window.

Succulents and cacti are now fashionable as home decor knick knacks. You can get them in many difference sizes, colors, and shapes. Show off your cacti and succulents in fun terracotta pots or floating terrariums, or put in some unique kinds in a large pot.

The Most Popular Plants For Cleaning Your Inside Air

Unseen toxins from outside pollution and inside items can store up in the environment in your apartment. You’ll breathe easier with purifying plants like pothos and snake plants. They suck up toxins from the air and release clean oxygen back into your rooms.

Pothos are plants with large leaves with lengthy stems that want to spill over the edges of shelves or hanging pots. They work in any lighting with a daily watering.

Snake plants have firm, pointed leaves that stand up and down. They diverge with some other popular houseplants if you plan to group a few types together. Snake plants will stand up to some neglect and require not much natural light or water, making them hard to hurt.
